About the Challenge:

Analyze This! & MinneAnalytics are excited to announce a new Sports Analytics challenge in partnership with Inside Edge, a Twin Cities-based sports scouting and data analytics organization with one of the most comprehensive databases of MLB stats in existence!

This competition will kick-off at 6:30 PM on October 12th at the UMN Hanson Hall and finish the afternoon of January 10th at the MinneAnalytics Sports Analytics Conference (held at the University of St. Thomas’ downtown Minneapolis campus). The format will be similar to our recently completed Science Museum of Minnesota Summer Data Challenge including prize money provided by MinneAnalytics.

Please stay tuned for further details.

Let the match-making begin!

Thanks,
Pedro, Mitch, Jake, Daniel, & Kevin

    Regarding the presentations on Tuesday, I want to touch on Sport Go Sports decision to just use one XGBoost model instead of stacking multiple models as part of telling the data story. Can I say in the presentation that we are confident this proved to be correct given our model performing the best against the test data? Or will every team's model results be shared at the end, and I should just say the audience can see how well we performed at the end?
